“Top notch experience but not magical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014 via mobile

Friday night dinner with friends.

Worth having a drink at the bar first and then through to restaurant for dinner.

Great wine list and wait staff had great wine knowledge (enjoyed a couple of David Franz wines which you don't see on wine lists too often).

Meals were delicious - fantastic in fact.

The experience fell short of 'magical' where ANY sized bill seems great value!

I'm sure we will go again but my preference would be one of the other restaurants along the river bank where I think you feel a little more connected to the water and Southbank experience.

“Serious food, seriously priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

Stokehouse is a great restaurant, with stunning views of river and the city skyline. On a recent evening the terrace doors were closed against the cold, but even then the view was still good. This is a restaurant in which to be seen, judging from the Comcars outside. The food is very good, a wide ranging menu, all well executed. The service was also very good, although it can suffer from the "that's not my table" syndrome amongst the wait staff, although happily not on my most recent visit. The wine list is extensive and mainly expensive, but the cheaper bottles were very drinkable. The restaurant is a little noisy, so a place for a group of friends rather than a quiet dinner for two. Most recently we went in the evening and had an excellent time, but lunch can be even more enjoyable, sitting right on the river.

“Great atmosphere and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

Good "business casual" atmosphere but relaxed enough for a weekend evening meal out. Nice, well thought out and delicious food - I had a superb, melt-in-your-mouth steak with a thoughtful wine list with something for most tastes. Surprisingly child friendly and a great perspective of Brisbane City outside the windows. Only noticeable downside was the strain on staff presence when it became busier but they nevertheless maintained composure and professionalism. An all round great experience.

“Stoke Bar (under Stokehouse) great place for late afternoon drink and meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

Great location at one end of the southbank with an open deck overlooking the river, fun environment with good DJ in the background playing wide variety of music, staff was knowledgeable and helpful, good wine by the glass selection and tasty bar food to make up a meal. We had planned on eating at Stokehouse restaurant but got there at 5 and it did not open until 6. The bar was open though and turned out to be a fun evening. We ordered three different Australian wines by the glass and all were very good. We made a meal of the Bar food, Burger and Fries, Fish and Chips, Vegetarian Share plate. The bill comes saying this the Stokehouse not Stoke bar

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Was hosted here for a wonderful semi-business dinner. the view was amazing, food excellent and the wind to die for. Of course it is AU where everything is perfect but this restaurant exemplifies why.
